So after today, I only have 13 more days to go til my 15k at the Rooster Days run on May 2nd. It’s been awhile since I have raced, November 23rd to be exact. After my marathon, my drive to run was just shot. I was burnt out to say the least and with all of a sudden change that happened in our life, I had little time and energy for it with selling a house and moving.
So now it’s back on and I have been running at least 3 times a week now for the last 4 weeks or so and it has been a struggle. Not so much getting it done, but my speed is just not there like it was, but I will keep pushing because I know it will come back, I just need to get my lungs built back up.
So today I ran 8 miles and it went well, however the last half mile my right foot and arch started in with a stabbing pain. Got home and took my usual bath post long run and then got ready for our afternoon out as a family. I will still hobbling around some but not too bad. Well we ended up going to the zoo and walked around for a good 3 hours and throughout that my foot just kept in with the sharp pain more and more. So now I find myself sitting in my recliner with my feet propped up, Ibuprofen taken, frozen water bottle in hand (or under foot rather) and doing a few stretches here or there. I’m pretty sure I know what it is and hoping it’s better by tomorrow. If not, I may have to treat myself at work. Perks of working at a physical therapy clinic I suppose.
Anyway, here is to feeling better tomorrow and getting prepped for my race!
Do you have any upcoming races?
